ROLO TOMASSI – The Scales of Balance / Remancer

From the album Astraea (2012)

A hard lesson to understand
I educate and learn nothing
Teaching how to make the most of a wreck.
Indulge in emotions,
Swallow them whole, and immerse
Yourself in these consequences.

Uncover neglect with a halfhearted attempt
And now you’re representing everything that we stood against.

An easy lesson so I’m told,
To pass through the underhand.
This knowledge will ensure to isolate.
Feet tripping over tales,
Mixing myths with minor truths
And occupying mouths.

What’s left of endearment? Hollowed out devotion.
Fueling advances, elevated memories

Revising my statement, revisiting my soul,
I rebelled against perfection and watched it devour all.

Seeking out perspective,
Unearthing everything.
I disagree without regret
Forever learning to settle for less.

Faltering foundations
I feel it slide
Collapsing from the inside
Uneasily I’ll find my feet
I’ll remain capable
Reinforced for now
But it’s still perishing
My discomfort directs me
Vexed by irrational scrutiny
Assuring plagues of despair
Articulated fears
Inflicting such pitiful catastrophes
Sabotage my subconscious, sparing me
Drained and dragged, confined in my mind, unraveling twisted reasoning.
Shining forth, drawn to this glow, unfortunate for the tormenting.
Far behind I’ll see
This falling short of everything
Far behind I’ll see
There is cause for release
Far behind I’ll see
The lack of ability to collide
Far behind there will be
No remorse this time
